Leatherman Tool Group Inc. formally launches its original American multi-tool in the Philippine Market, which is distributed officially by Willi Hahn Enterprises (WHE)/ Hahn. Mr Willi Hahn, a retailer of high quality sporting goods, saw and recognized the potential of these products in the growing demand for such.
“For Filipinos who are always on the go, ease of access to everything is quite important. So having a handy dandy tool which fits in the pocket will definitely answer the growing need for products like these on the market,” says Hahn.
There will be a three-day launch happening from February 18-20, 2014 at SM Science Center, with Mr. Leatherman himself, the man behind the complex multi-tool.
During the first day of the launch, Mr. Leatherman shared his experiences leading to the creation of this tool. He said that he realized the need for his pliers to be paired with his good old trusty Boy Scout-type knife, later pushing him to develop his idea into something useful, with the help of his college friend Steve Berliner. He also conducted a quick demonstration to show how durable and efficient his products are.
The exhibit housed several kinds of multi-tools, but this particular beast caught our eye.
The launch was attended by Tommy Santrock, Vice President of For Sales, Leatherman; Felix Chan, Asia Pacific Sales Manager; WIlli Hahn, Owner, Hahn Manila; and Kevin Hamil, Director of International Sales Leatherman.
Leatherman esrablished its name with its multi-tools, knives and pocket tools, and integrating pliers into multi-tools.
Leatherman tools are available at any of the ten branches of Hahn in Metro Manila, Pampanga and Cebu.
